Well this is probably my favorite quilt yet. The process from beginning to end was blissful.
A friend commissioned this quilt for her brother's first baby. She is the same friend who commissioned wonky Mother Goose log cabin baby quilt for her friend's baby, below:
|Quilt for Adelaide, made about a year ago|
I kick myself that I didn't take photos on the weekend, before washing the quilt, because I ended up having to take pictures in artificial light. Except for this first one below, of the binding, made with Alisse Courter fabric.

also, the half square triangle blocks were pieced by stash sister Nancy's former daughter-in-law
|The parents like owls ... apparently ..|
|There are scraps from every which source ...|
|.. scraps from thrift clothes, from a special friend's stash,|
from Nancy, from a quilter who sold me her stash before moving to Switzerland ...
|scraps from my dear friend Susie ..|
|.. scraps from my old vintage stash ..|
I just had to document every square inch. As I quilted over each inch of this I enjoyed it more than I can express. I wish I could have kept it. I hope Eveyln and her parents will love it.
